These simple New Years cookies are a simple alternative to all the intricate desserts created during the holidays. No chocolate chips, peppermint or gingerbread necessary.
These New Year’s Eve cookies are a cake mix cookie (so easy to make) with lots of fun and sparkly, New Year’s Eve themed sprinkles mixed in. Think gold, silver, black, and white.
They are the perfect sweet treat to have on hand to toast with champagne or sparkling cider at midnight.
Easy New Year’s Eve Cookies Ingredients
- Cake Mix
- 1/3 C + 1 TB Canola Oil
- 2 Eggs
- Assorted white, silver, black and gold sprinkles
How to make Easy New Years Cookies
Combine the eggs and oil with the cake mix. Then generously add your New Year’s Eve themed sprinkles and stir gently.
Chill the dough in the fridge for a few hours. I think the cookie turn out chewier but if you don’t have time, it won’t be the end of the world. Unless of course, it’s 1999 (Y2K anyone?!?!?).
Drop ~1″ balls on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees, be careful not to undercook these cookies. Let them cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before moving them to cooling racks.
Chocolate New Year’s Eve Cookies
Chocolate New Years cookies are fun too, just use a box of chocolate cake mix. I also added a little black food dye, to really make the sprinkles pop. These cookies are sweet enough and no royal icing or frosting is necessary.
This recipe is easy enough for kids to make if they want to help with New Years Eve party prep too.
